I logged in from my Mint to a windows share (which is actually a linux running samba, if it's relevant), typed in the password, and got it. Even though I marked it to forget the password immidiatly, it stills let me log in without retyping the password.

This is a problem since the username/password I'm using will determine which folder I will be shown.

How do I force Mint to forget the credentials?

Rebooting your machine after marking can fix this

  • The idea is to do so without rebooting though – Tom Klino Jun 2 '16 at 12:22
  • I agree. That being said, sometimes rebooting sorts the issue. Its worth a try. Did you manage to fix it? – simon Jun 2 '16 at 15:13
  • Yes, but I rebooted the system before posting the question. Again, that is completely not my question, I have a few directories I'm trying to access and they will be displayed based on the user I'm logging in as, rebooting the system so I can access 2 different directories is absord. – Tom Klino Jun 2 '16 at 17:58
